Bradgate Park

Nature lovers will revel in the beautiful landscapes and woodland scenery at Bradgate Park; one of Leicestershire’s most picturesque spots, covering 830 acres. The Park is a medieval deer park, once popular as a hunting ground; and the red and fallow deer still reside here, mostly concealed within the thick bracken, though if you’re lucky, you might just spot one or two

Hartshill Hayes & Coventry Canal Ramble

This is a more ambitious circular 13.4 miles, likely to take 6-7 hours. This is Walk 20 of a series of routes along Warwickshire’s Centenary Way. From Hartshill Hayes country park, with its amazing views, the walk heads down to the Coventry canal. After a short urban stretch the return is along pleasant field paths.
